Two difficult races with again many early prizes

There were two races for us this weekend: Chevrainvilliers (354km) and the national Bourges (479km) race. It was again a difficult racing weekend for the pigeons. On their way back home the pigeons had to deal with heavy rain showers. In France the birds had to fly against the Northwest wind. Once they crossed the Belgian borders the wind direction completely shifted to the South. Because of this sudden change the national Bourges race had not the result as people had expected. Our birds did again a good job, like they are doing already since the start of the season.

Our pigeons won the following results:

25/05/2019 Bourges (479km)
National 24,053 old birds: 31-40-141-…  4/9
(1st nominated bird wins 40° national)

South Antwerp Federation 732 yearlings: 3-6-8-11-15-16-17-19-20-23-24-25-32-35-36-37-39-42-49-59-73-…  43/71
